Ubisoft issues call for third season of incubator program at Station F

Blockchain, AI technology start-ups encouraged to apply for six-month support program at Paris campus

Ubisoft has announced today a call for blockchain and AI start-ups to participate in its international incubator program at its Paris Station F campus.

The program, now in its third season, targets entrepreneurs focused on projects involving AI, machine learning, deep learning, and blockchain to create better entertainment experiences and bring value to that content.

The selected projects will join a six-month program from January to July 2019 where Ubisoft experts and other partnered industry figures will offer personalized assistance in building the start-up.

"These technologies are revolutionizing the way we live, the way we work and the way we entertain," said start-up program director Catherine Seys. "Algorithms and AI have always been core to the gaming industry, and Ubisoft in particular has been exploring for some time new possibilities offered by AI and machine learning to improve the way we craft games."
